Purpose-driven

Nearly 800 million people in the world lack access to clean water. We've teamed up with the One Drop Foundation (an initiative by Guy Laliberte, founder of Cirque du Soleil) to donate 1 day of clean drinking water for every Guusto gift sent.

I really enjoyed working with the Guusto team. They are very knowledgeable and helpful about their industry. They are also super efficient and quick with getting work completed! Any time I had a question or needed assistance, their turnaround was awesome.

This software is very very simple to use. It offers quick videos on any area you need clarification on. Step by Step instructions and not to worry, if you find you made an error once you have submitted the order; you can quickly recall it back in seconds. Another great feature is the on-line chat.. myself and other staff members have used this many times.

Guusto provides us with an efficient platform to send our associates a financial reward so that they are able to purchase merchandise or spend their gift card value on a fun experience... It has also given us another channel for sending our associates recognition for their outstanding personal achievements. We have really enjoyed this new program and it has definitely helped to motivate and drive results.
